No, his mind is not for rent
To any god or government.
Always hopeful, yet discontent,
He knows changes aren't permanent,
But change is.

My ISP spammed me about pre-sale concert tickets. I couldn't help myself :cry:

Round 2 :

For gangs, clubs, and nations
causing grief in human relations
It's a turf war on a global scale
I'd rather hear both sides of the tale
See, it's not about races
Just places
Faces

Black Or White - M. Jackson

And no, I'm not particularly a fan of the Fantastic Plastic Nutbar's more recent work. Google is your friend.

My people unite and let's all get down
We gotta have what? love peace and understandin
One god, One love, One light
One aim, One voice, One fight

Conscious hip hop right there, dare I say "real" hip hop. Can anyone name that song?

...of course that pales in comparison to the greatest Rush lyric that goes:

"You can be the captain,
And I will draw the chart.
Sailing into destiny,
Closer to the heart..."

man, i used to be a big Rush freak. :)

no way the best rush song..........



"My uncle has a country place
That no one knows about.
He says it used to be a farm,
Before the Motor Law.
And on Sundays I elude the Eyes,
And hop the Turbine Freight
To far outside the Wire,
Where my white-haired uncle waits."

going to post the whole song, this song deserves it :lmao:


My uncle has a country place
That no one knows about.
He says it used to be a farm,
Before the Motor Law.
And on Sundays I elude the Eyes,
And hop the Turbine Freight
To far outside the Wire,
Where my white-haired uncle waits.

Jump to the ground
As the Turbo slows to cross the Borderline.
Run like the wind,
As excitement shivers up and down my spine.
Down in his barn,
My uncle preserved for me an old machine,
For fifty-odd years.
To keep it as new has been his dearest dream.

I strip away the old debris
That hides a shining car.
A brilliant red Barchetta
From a better, vanished time.
I fire up the willing engine,
Responding with a roar.
Tires spitting gravel,
I commit my weekly crime...

Wind-
In my hair-
Shifting and drifting-
Mechanical music-
Adrenalin surge...

Well-weathered leather,
Hot metal and oil,
The scented country air.
Sunlight on chrome,
The blur of the landscape,
Every nerve aware.

Suddenly ahead of me,
Across the mountainside,
A gleaming alloy air-car
Shoots towards me, two lanes wide.
I spin around with shrieking tires,
To run the deadly race,
Go screaming through the valley
As another joins the chase.

Drive like the wind,
Straining the limits of machine and man.
Laughing out loud
With fear and hope, I've got a desperate plan.
At the one-lane bridge
I leave the giants stranded at the riverside.
Race back to the farm, to dream with my uncle at the fireside.

And I have been listening to 2112 all afternoon ... can't get it out of my head!

What is YOUR favorite Rush album?

Moving Pictures! (Signals, A Farwell to Kings, ...). The only ones that I'm not very fond of are some of the newer stuff. The latest one is pretty good though.
